The follocles are paired or narrowly linear, longitudinally ribbed and shortly beaked. The seeds are black, cylindric and ribbed. The flowering season is through out the year.


In Ayurveda the leaves,the seeds, the flowers and the roots are used for treatment of leukemia, diabetes, menorrhagia.

Chemical Constituents

Contains more than 70 alkaloids mostly of the indole type.

It has medicinal importance owing to the presence of alkaloids like Ajamalicine,

Serpentine and Reserpine, which are well known for their hypotensive and

antospasmodic properties.


Periwinkle roseus is one of the few medicinal plants which has found mention in the folk

medicinal literature as early as 2nd B.C.

Vincristine is an alkaloid derived from flowering periwinkle.

Its use is limited because of its toxic effects, among them being neuro toxicity.


The rootbark contains the alkaloid Alstonine which has been used traditionally for its

calming effect and its ability to reduce blood pressure.

The anti cancer drug namely Vincristine and Vinblastine are produced from Periwinkle

Anti cancer drug

Vinblastine and vincristine are alkaloids found in Periwinkle

They are all administered intravenously in their sulphate form. These solutions are fatal if

they're administered any other way and can cause a lot of tissue irritation if they leak out

of the vein.

Although these compounds are very similar in structure and have the same basic action,

they have distinctly different effects on the body.

Most commonly used in treatment of the following type of cancers:


Hodgkin's Disease

Breast cancer

Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia

Soft tissue sarcomas

Multiple Myeloma


More recently, extracts from Madagascar periwinkle have been shown to be effective in

the treatment of various kinds of leukemia, skin cancer, lymph cancer, breast cancer and

Hodgkin's disease.

Suitable climate in Tamil Nadu

In view of the tropical climate, a few regions in India such as Tuticorin in Tamil Nadu

are considered to be ideal location for cultivating Periwinkle. Both dry

leaves and alkaloids are being exported regularly.
